Titans running back Derrick Henry had more than 200 yards rushing on Sunday and Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had more than 350 yards passing as they led the way in the NFL’s weekly honor roll.
Across the way in the NFC, Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan grabbed NFC Offensive Player of the Week on the heels of leading his team to its first win of the season, 40-23 over the Minnesota Vikings. Ryan put up huge numbers with 371 yards and four touchdowns. He was the picture of accuracy, completing passes at a 75% rate (30-for-40), throwing no interceptions and tallying a 136.6 rating.
AFC Special Teams Player of the Week was had by Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus. The Broncos pulled off an 18-12 upset of the New England Patriots and McManus was all the Denver offense had and needed. McManus scored all 18 of his team’s points, converting all six of his field goal attempts, including two from 50-plus.
Arizona Cardinals safety Budda Baker made the most of the Monday Night Football prime time stage and is the NFC Defensive Player of the Week. Baker terrorized the Dallas Cowboys in the Cardinals’ 38-10 win. The hard-hitting DB posted seven tackles, one sack, one interception and a forced fumble, filling up the stat line and taking charge as the Cardinals captain.
